If you are : Absolutely sure it is only a muscle strain, then no. They will most likely give you some nsaids that you can get over the counter after a long wait and costly visit. If you are sure, wait and see primary care doc tomorrow if it is still bothering you. Hope that helps!

Rest and NSAIDs: Treat all sprains and strains with "rice" - rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Nsaids include Ibuprofen adn naproxyn. Muscle strains can take 6-12 weeks to heal. This is a large muscle so it will probably take closer to 10-12 weeks. Pain in this area may be from piriformis syndrome or sciatica, a sign of a pinched nerve in your back. If symptoms persiste, see a doctor.
